Turkish Model Rejects Greek Offer Because it Deserves an 'Ottoman Slap'

A Turkish fashion model has sparked controversy after claiming she turned down a job offer in Athens “because of the attitude of Greece towards our country”.
Merve Akkanat, who won first prize in Turkey‘s Top Model contest last week in Istanbul, claimed to Turkish media that she rejected a proposal from Greece to participate in Athens Fashion Week in late March.
“I received a proposal for the fashion week in Athens on March 30. But I recently rejected it because of Greece’s attitude towards our country,” she was quoted as saying.
“Greece should know its place because we are the grandchildren of Ottomans. We know how to hand an olive branch to the oppressed, but also the Ottoman slap to the ones who deserve it,” Akkanat added.
